A second Mustang ridden: Thoroughbred in British colors

Parallel to "Scooter´s Skeeter" I made a second Mustang out of the same kit. This time with retracted landing gear -and completely out of the box. Turning props have been simulated by transparent sheet and airbrush, decals are from the box. Of [...]

A tough ride: Mustang model-rodeo sponsored by Airfix.

This model building project proved to be a tough nut to crack. In order to adapt the kit to my expectations, some changes had to be made, the most important of which I will briefly address in the following: shortening of the main landing gear st[...]

Two shiny “little friends”: here comes the second one.

I did chose to build a RAF Mustang Mk. III, the decals have been taken from the kit. I hope you like the outcome and the pictures!

Two shiny “little friends”: here is the first one.

Recently, I have decided to once again tackle a rather problem-free construction. Having Airfix's 1:24 P-51 on my workbench and two 1:32 Mustangs from Revell and Trumpeter, I chose the Tamiya kit. A few etched parts from Eduard freshened up the [...]

Hawker Hurricane: King´s Cup 1950

This is a very special Hurricane: the last to have been produced, one of the last still flying, a film star.... and it played its role in a great love that should not be.... I m using the Hasegawa kit of this racing Hurricane to reproduce its el[...]

Saab J 29 Tunnan, Austrian Air Force/ Pilot Replicas 1:48

Hello, I'd like to introduce a Triplett Saab J 21 Tunnan by Pilot Replicas in 1:48 that I'm currently working on. Two of them will be in flawless markings on their own wheels, while the third one is planned as a rather weathered gate-guard mach[...]
